Extended Double Zepp Antenna. Post 1943.

If you want your HF dipole to have better gain and some directivity, try this "classic" Extended Double Zepp Antenna.

The EDZ antenna described by Stan Gibilisco (W1GV) is a "collinear array of two 5/8 waves in phase", which delivers approximately 3 dB gain broadside to the antenna.  According to Stan, construction of this antenna is simple and uses locally available materials. Just follow the diagram provided, and you should have a dipole with a bit more"punch" for your ham station.
